"Thanks Wayne. It is much better. On version 1 of SLUGS we were analog gyros, accels and mags. Drift and noise was pretty bad, and the set-reset circuitry of the mags was a royal pain. On this new setup where we have the AD temperature compensated…"
So after endless hours in the lab I am happy to report success in all fronts of the autopilot and making the GIT repository publicly available. The project's website has been updated to reflect the new hardware version and all the changes in the…
Thanks for your response. Any chance we can take a look at the Simulink Model of your algorithm? We currently have our own controls and 6DOF model, I would really like to take a look at the Simulink section of your algorithm itself.
I would be very interested in taking a look at the theory behind this to implement it in a Simulink Model, which would, I think, make it more understandable from the academic point of view. I wonder if you have anything written about…"
"Plenty has been written about this. Essentially what you want is a 6DOF aerodynamic model of the aircraft. There are a couple of things you need. First I would highly recommend, as Tom Yochum suggests, to use Simulink as your simulation engine.
"Thanks! We don't have a firm date yet but we assume that it will be some time in late May or early June. The reson for this delay is because we are currently in the middle of an extensive hardware revision. We have dropped the gyros, accelerometers…"
Waypoint tracking is one of the most sought-out features in an autopilot. Essentially it allows the end-user to program (generally via a map or an aerial picture) a path (composed of waypoints) that the UAV is commanded to track. When we started…
"I completely agree with Chris. And I don't think I understand your point. You are inferring one thing from a previous statement I posted on a comment. When i said that whatever will be (or already is) implemented is in open literature, I mentioned…"
"Reagarding export control, open sourcing and what not, all I can say is that I do not know anything regarding US legislation, but I do not see why this would become "anything"-restricted. Everything in the AP has either been or will be published in…"
"@Noth666, we will NOT sell anything, not now and not in the foreseeable future, so not sure what you mean by "available in Europe." The source code (and binaries), Schematics, Layouts and Gerbers will be available so you can roll your own.
